The Altruist Red Blend Magnum

Napa Valley
92 Points - James Suckling
$60.00 CLUB

A Magnum Bottling of The Altruist (1.5L)
Equivalent to 2 bottles / 10 glasses

Crafted predominantly with estate-grown fruit, this Bordeaux-style red blend is centered on the velvety flavors of Merlot.

The wine lots for this blend spent nearly 25 months in barrel, resulting in generous, fruit-forward notes of floral plum, vanilla, baking spice and black pepper.
